AP Readiness Program
The Advanced Placement Readiness (APR) program provides supplemental instructional support to current and potential AP students. This supplemental instructional support is provided by UCR on their campus. This is a great opportunity for students currently in one or more AP course to increase chances of passing the AP test at the end of the year with a 3 or higher, which means saving time and money in college. Students should take advantage of this free opportunity. Students will be provided with transportation to and from Tahquitz and lunch. Flyer is attached below. Interest students should pick up permission slip packets from Ms. Figueroa in the College and Career Center (rm 412).
